Because you couldn’t





save his life





have more time





stop the bullets


Because you had to





call his wife





and tell his kid





her daddy died

Because you couldn’t





warn the men





make them stop





give them life

Because you had to





hold the man





who that day lost





his only child

Because you couldn’t





see it coming





move any faster





get more time

Because she couldn’t





call her husband





and hear his voice





ever again.

Because you had





to write their mothers





send them flags





with simple letters

Because you had to





call his wife





and tell his kid





her daddy died…

You will never be the same.
